Blossom – poem revised

Here is another piece that I drafted in August. Revised 30 November 2009.

Blossom

The future creeps towards you,

the past speeds away.

The world shudders and cleaves,

tears open a void at your back,

black and gaping, a vacuum

that pulls at your coattails,

a hungry child.

Exquisite moments

melt

as they blossom

beneath your finger

tips.
